The San Antonio Spurs are a professional basketball team in the National Basketball Association (the NBA). The San Antonio Spurs play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference with four other teams: the Dallas Mavericks, the New Orleans Pelicans, the Houston Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies. Spurs tickets will surely be hard to come by during the 2014-2015 NBA schedule.
San Antonio Spurs 2014-2015 Outlook
San Antonio looked fresh during the postseason, thanks largely to a maintenance plan that kept every single Spur under 30 minutes per game during the year. When younger, more athletic teams broke down, the well-rested Spurs hit their stride.
Expect them to take the same approach this year, if not an even more conservative one. The regular season is no longer a challenge for this bunch, and they proved last year that they could essentially give games away without hurting their postseason positioning.
Despite holding veterans out of back-to-back games all season, the Spurs won a league-high 62 contests.
If something goes awry, maybe they’ll slip up and win 57 or 58 this year.
Until proved otherwise, San Antonio is the West’s best.
The AT&T Center is an indoor arena on the east side of San Antonio, Texas, USA. It seats 18,581 for basketball, 16,000 for ice hockey, and 19,000 for concerts or religious gatherings, and contains 2,018 club seats, 50 luxury suites and 32 bathrooms.
The arena was completed in 2002, as the SBC Center, at a cost of $186 million, financed by county-issued bonds, which were supported by a hotel-occupancy and car-rental tax increase and an additional contribution of $28.5 million from the Spurs. SBC Communications, Inc., purchased the naming rights to the facility under a 20-year, $41 million naming rights agreement with Bexar County, the San Antonio Spurs, and the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in July 2000. SBC Communications changed its name to AT&T Inc. in November 2005 after its purchase of AT&T Corporation. The arena officially changed its name to AT&T Center in January 2006.
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association holds the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo and an Xtreme Bulls tour event annually there, around February. On the weekend of August 1–2, 2009, the Professional Bull Riders hosted a Built Ford Tough Series event there.
In addition to many local community and sporting events, the center hosts San Antonio Sports Car Association autocross competitions in the parking lot each month.

The San Antonio Spurs franchise originally started in the city of Dallas, Texas in 1967. The “Dallas Chaparrals” were one of the four original members of the American Basketball Association. The franchise suffered from poor attendance and poor play in Dallas and eventually was sold to a group of 36 San Antonio businessmen prior to the 1973-1974 season. With the acquisitions of Swen Nater and “The Iceman” George Gervin, the San Antonio Spurs became one of the stronger teams in the ABA until it folded in 1976. The NBA invited 4 ABA teams to join the ranks of the NBA for the 1976-1977 NBA season – the San Antonio Spurs, the Denver Nuggets, the Indiana Pacers and the New Jersey Nets.
From 1976 through 1983, the San Antonio Spurs recorded winning seasons and advanced to the playoffs. The San Antonio Spurs advanced to the conference finals 3 times during that stretch, but each time, the San Antonio Spurs came up short, losing to the Washington Bullets in 1979, and the Los Angeles Lakers in each of 1982 and 1983. From 1983 through 1989, the San Antonio Spurs recorded only one season at the .500 level and although the team still advanced to the playoffs 3 separate years, they lost each year in the 1st round of the playoffs.
Starting with the 1989-1990 season, however, the San Antonio Spurs regained their winning ways and began one of the most successful franchise runs in NBA history. During that span, the San Antonio Spurs incurred only 1 losing season while winning at least 47 games in each of the other seasons (save for the strike-shortened 1998-1999 season when the Spurs finished with a remarkable 37-13 record). The development of david Robinson into a legitimate NBA star helped solidify the San Antonio Spurs as a title contender each and every year from 1989 through 2003. David Robinson led the San Antonio Spurs to its first NBA Championship in 1997 and retired from the NBA in 2003 after the team secured its second NBA Championship. By that time, Tim Duncan had emerged as an NBA star himself, and he would lead the San Antonio Spurs to two more NBA Championships in 2005 and 2007. Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Brent Barry and Bruce Bowen helped solidify the core unit surrounding the 2005 and 2007 championship seasons.
The San Antonio Spurs have retired the following players’ numbers: Johnny Moore’s #00; Avery Johnson’s #6; James Silas’ #13; Sean Elliot’s #32; George Gervin’s #44; and David Robinson’s #50.
